Okay, so < and > are used to encase HTML tags.
Some HTML tags are allowed to be posted.
But if you post "tags", with a ` at the end, the entire thing disappears.
I found this by copy/pasting IRC logs.
If you type a non-valid tag, like this: <IRCNICK`> IRC Message
It ends up being treated like this: IRC Message
I hope that I explained clearly.
Copy/Paste the example to replicate. Last Edited: Tue Sep 17, 2013 20:34:40 Super secret reinforced spam barrier 2.0

This is deliberate. You can't post content inside < and >. We have no reliable way to validate "some" tags and not others, even though the one you mention is not valid HTML its very possible that some browsers would actaully just ignore crazy chars and treat < br `> as < br >
